    Guys: How Does This Make you Feel?

    I'm frankly amused. Evidently lots and lots of men are greatly upset by the 30-second Calvin Klein commercial linked below that ran during the Super Bowl. It consists of nothing but the showcasing of a muscle-bound male model in tight, skimpy underwear. What's amusing about that, you ask? What's amusing is that guys are suddenly offended by sexual objectification...NOW THAT IT'S THEM!!!

    Here's the commercial:




    Here are the top two most popular comments on the YouTube page for this commercial as of this writing:

    This is the most popular comment, with 35 Likes: "LOL all the men are pissed as hell, women have to see half-naked unattainable female bodies every hour...good that it's switched for once, hes sexy as F", writes thegreentree11.

    The second most popular comment, with 16 Likes, is this one by RyalityTV: "It's probably "disliked" by insecure guys who are mad that this guy has a better body than them. lol"

    ...Need I say more? This is how women are treated all the time in our media and men never get upset by it, but instead reward it and tell us womenz to just get over it and quit being "feminazis" and "bitches" about everything. Yet now that it's you though, it's a big deal and totally offensive!

    What I'm saying guys is that you should either quit treating women this way or stop complaining when the same thing happens to you, one of the two. But let's not have these silly male chauvinist double-standards. If you get to treat us as sub-human, we get to treat you the same way, and I don't wanna hear ANY complaints! Deal? If you're offended by one little spot here and there, imagine how us ladies feel. Ready to take this issue seriously yet?

    Personally I don't give a shit one way or the other. Commercials are when I mix another drink.

    So, @Polly Kong, you are opposed to this ad though, right?

    I hate commercials period so I hate this one no more, no less. Objectification of the human body for the purpose of selling a product is nothing new. If there weren't women with huge boobs there would be no beer sales.

    I'm opposed to sexual objectification. People should be treated like people, not products or sex toys, in my view.

    I mean, it's weird and exploitative, but it's a sign of the times we live in, and as a problem, it's small fry. But I don't get the weird hypocritical outrage some guys do when they see a half naked dude on TV.

    I did see a guys gone wild commercial a couple years ago watching TV late. That was pretty surprising. I guess there was a lot of male butthurt, because I never saw it again after that.

    Beer...interesting observation. What is your favorite? Boobs never sold me a beer; it was always taste.

    I like either a good dark beer like Guinness or just a Corona with lime (reminds me of summer). Excluding home brew, of course.
